    Hi all ! :D

    I just came back from a 1 month trip in Bolivia, so I thought I'd share some photos. Bolivia is a pretty interesting country actually, and it was a great trip.

    [​IMG]

    A small part of La Paz taken from the city of El Alto, on the Altiplano. Height 4000 m.

    El Cerro Rico, the bigest silver mine in the world, exploited since the 16th century on top of Potosi. Height 4 070 m.

    [​IMG]
    A small part of he Salar of Uyuni, 12 500 km². Height 3600 m.

    La Laguna Verde (height 4350 m) and the Licancabur volcano (height 5920).

    Some pretty extreme conditions as you can see. I also went into the lower part, into the Amazonian basin, saw some awesome trees and animals. :blink: :D

    Got plenty of other photos if you wanna see more. :lol:

    Some nice pics there Charles, looks like Bolivia is a quite exotic place, as well as diverse. If you got some pics that will make a good background, add them! :D

    BTW how'd you end up deciding on going to Bolivia?

    My parents happened to live there for a 1 yr and a half, with my young brother, so I went there to visit them with my gf. :) I recommend it really, it's cheap (which is always a good thing) there's not a lot of tourists and the nature is awesome :blink: . :cheers:

    Will do a pix update soon.

    All i know about Bolivia:

    - Jaime Moreno, MLS footballer.
    - It is at high altitude, so high in fact they play the soccer up there on purpose and usually get a decent result against teams like Brazil and Argentina as they half collapse of tiredness due to the altitude.

    Charles, can you email me that last photo if you have it at a high-res, for a desktop image? Great photos!

    I agree with Gay-Guy, all of us should take some photos of women from all over the world on our travels and have an international TRF beauty pageant.

    Samoa would win of course..
     

  8. You forgot Evo Morales!

    After years (nay centuries) of seeing no money from its own wealth and gringos pillaging the place he nationalised the gas fields etc etc.Also the first indigenous person to become president i believe.

    One of my political heros.

    Oh and FIFA tried to ban matches being played in La Paz because of altitude. :angry:
